Description from American Meadows
The Climbing Hydrangea is quite different from all the others. In fact, unlike the popular shrubs, it is a tall-climbing woody vine that attaches itself, usually, to masonry walls. Some old brick, stone, or stucco homes have these that are decades old, and they are incredible when they bloom, like a tall tree attached to the house with beautiful side-branches sticking out with their huge white flower clusters. It is a slow grower, but if you want something special on your masonry foundation, garden wall, or any other place, this is a spectacular, major plant the neighbors have never seen!
